Australia Star's Goodwill
Nicole Kidman hopes to not only have Australia on people's minds, but also the plight of women across the globe. Kidman was at the UN specifically to shine a light on global battered women and their urgent need for international attention.
The actress felt it was her duty considering the upbringing Kidman had as the daughter of a woman who was a women's rights pioneer in Australia.
"We thought that the more names we collected, the stronger our case to make ending violence against women a top priority for governments everywhere," Kidman says.
